Medical Staff

  Our Medical Staff

What do medical staff do at camp?

The Medical Team is responsible for working with camp staff to care for the participants of our programs under the guidance of a Medical Director. From cuts and scrapes to insulin doses and adjustments, our Medical Team takes care of it all! At our camps, medical staff are assigned to a group of campers for the whole session and help dose and adjust insulin at every meal.

How many medical staff attend each program?

We have a range of medical staff needs that vary based on the length and type of program. Regardless of the session, you will never be the only medical staff on duty and you’ll always report to our Medical Director, who has vast experience in working with children with type 1 diabetes.

Who can apply?

In typical years, we welcome all licensed nurses, certified diabetes educators, registered dietitians, or physicians, to apply as a volunteer at one of our programs.

In 2021 due to limited capacity and an inability to teach all learning levels, we will limit medical staff applications to returners only.

How much time am I committing?

This year, our summer programs take place Monday-Friday. See our full schedule for session dates.

Can I get credit for attending a program as a medical staff volunteer?

We are pleased to be able to offer Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for RN’s at our residential summer programs (Bearskin Meadow Camp.)
